Rock solid board with amazing OC and unlocking capabilities7/12/2011 12:58:54 PM

Pros: * Rock solid stability at default and OC * SUPER easy to OC * Also very easy to unlock cores

Cons: No USB 3.0 or SATA 6Gbps, but I knew that. It's done everything I've asked of it and more.

Overall Review: This board has performed flawlessly. With a Phenom II X2 560, I first tried the "Easy OC Switch" (a pair of dip switches on the MB that will increase CPU performance by up to 20%) and the CPU speed went up to 3960MHz (from 3.3GHz). I then set the switches back to default and tried to unlock the two unused cores and lo and behold - I now have a Phenom II X4 CPU! Then, I figured I'd try the X4 with the Easy OC Switch turned on and it still works flawlessly. Amazing that I turned a Phenom II X2 3.3GHz into a Phenom II X4 3.96GHz with about five minutes of quick changes.
